Working on the Grade



Things have progressed with this Philippines project and I am now nearing the end. As I write this, I am about 50% of the way through the colour correction/ grading process. Hopefully by the end of today, that process will be complete (well, until I export, review it all together, and then realise where I need to make some minor adjustments) and then I can get this film finished up!


That would be ideal.


I know I’ve used this shot previously, but there’s something about it that I just love. Maybe it’s the clouds, I don’t know. The picture above is ungraded and the one below is an example of the grade so far:



for a ‘side by side’ look:


For the sake of time, I am using Apple’s Color, even though I’ve been editing in Premiere Pro CS6. I need to get this done quickly and I’ve not yet had the time to learn SpeedGrade… that will be the next project!


right, well back to work!

Once this is all finished, the plan is to put together a post explaining the workflow for all of this. Should be fun!
